On The Road Again - June 9th

When one has been birding as long as I have, getting new birds gets more and more difficult. How did I spend my summer vacation? Tracking down only three species - Bicknell's Thrush, Bachman's Sparrow, Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow. With only three birds on tap, and a possible road trip in December, I opted to keep this trip relatively short.

June 9th was a travel day. After work, I left Metro Detroit and got to Charleston, WV. Seems like a cool town in the dark. Eastern Ohio is pretty nice, but West Virginia is simply awesome – rolling hills with woods. Nothing special bird wise – Common Nighthawks over the hotel. A cheap hotel is always good.
